The Nation’s Capital Is a Haggard Old City of Marble

Several weeks ago, I carefully extracted a partially decomposed rat carcass from a toolbox stored in the small open-air vestibule in front of my apartment. The stench was nauseating and the entire specimen was infested with maggots eating the rotting flesh from the inside out. This wasn’t the first time this year I had to

Symbols for the Symbol Minded

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) was roundly criticized on the Right last week for voting for a joint resolution that many saw as a rebuke of President Trump’s decision to kill Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran’s elite Quds Force. If the toothless concurrent resolution did contain a rebuke, it was not clear from the actual

Why Can’t Elites Celebrate Our Victory Over Iran?

Let’s give Iran credit where it’s due. It took an extraordinary level of technical skill for them to launch 22 missiles at two military bases filled with U.S. and Iraqi soldiers and manage to not kill a single person—especially after the Iranians unintentionally killed at least 56 of their own people in stampedes during the

To Hell With These Gilded Charlatans

Ricky Gervais just does not care. He delivered a scalding opening monologue at the Golden Globes on Sunday, in which he lambasted the excesses of Hollywood culture, the creative laziness of most large studios, and the hypocrisy of constant virtue signaling from a wealthy and largely out-of-touch Hollywood elite. That Gervais’ irreverence was desperately needed

But They Only Go to 11

Pundits in the mainstream American media are driving themselves crazy. Their coverage of President Trump has been at a fever pitch for the past two and a half years, but somehow it feels as though the pitch is constantly rising. Each time we turn on the news, we hear that Trump has said or done

The Trayvon Martin Hoax Comes Crashing Down

Remember Skittles and iced-tea? In the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s fatal confrontation with George Zimmerman, the media went to great pains to characterize the teenager as an innocent kid who was shot for wearing a hoodie while black. After all, this depiction fit their narrative—their narrative of a country filled with racist rednecks just waiting

No Questions? Nonsense—Mueller Must Testify

After two years of investigation, Robert Mueller on Wednesday gave his first public statement since the inception of the special counsel’s office. Mueller’s remarks, which lasted less than 10 minutes and entertained no questions, offered no new substantive information apart from the announcement that the office was formally closing and that Mueller would
